Greetings from Gus! This goofy guy is about two years old and falls in love with any human he meets! This great cuddler is currently living in a great foster home where he gets play time with his foster siblings and lots of pets from his foster mom.
Gus enjoys sleeping in his crate when his people are home, but can wiggle his way out of it when left alone. He enjoys playing with other pups and people around his size, and absolutely loves his ropes and chew toys. His foster mom loves how he sticks with her around the house, always open to pets and snuggles. Overall, Gus is a calm, goofy pup who enjoys spurts of play time.
His ideal home is one where his doggie siblings are close to his size, as he can sometimes not realize his own big size and strength around smaller dogs. He needs an active family who will devote time to play with him, walk him, and, most importantly, give him all the love and structure he needs to succeed at doggie-hood. Could that family be yours?
Gus is available for pre-adopt only at this time, as he is heartworm positive. Heartworm disease is a non-contagious and treatable condition in dogs, but is fatal if left untreated.
